Zayn Malik

 Author's Note: Well we had to write about a truth or a lie, obviously I picked a truth. I feel like I always find a way to write about One Direction in some way. And I think that that's okay. You know? Zayn Malik.

You know, don’t ask me why I like Zayn Malik so much. I just, do. Once my cousin showed me a picture of them for the first time, of course she was Harry Styles obsessed, (Who isn’t?), but only one boy in that band caught my eye. That boy was Zayn. Zayn is the dark haired one with beautiful eyes. I think that is what caught my attention, his eyes. My eyes aren’t really a solid color, they are a hazel mix but, I wish they were just solid brown. But anyway, I started to listen to their music and realized that they are actually good. They aren’t just another boy band, they actually make good and quality music that is worth listening to. Now, I’m not the teenage girl type to get obsessed with boy bands but I got to say, One Direction took my breath away.

I know, I know, Zayn is 19. And it’s not like I will ever have a chance with him even if I were around his age but, I don’t care. It’s only 6 years right? (Yeah, I tried to pull that one on my parents, didn’t work) I just want to meet him, maybe just say hello? I don’t think he or anyone else in his band try to be the teenage boy heartthrob that all of the girls go crazy over. They are just them and people love them for that. Their voices and good looks are just a plus! I have tickets to their concert in July 2013 and I enter contests to meet them or get front row tickets pretty much every day. I just want to hang out with them or meet them at least. I just want him to know I exist.

What The Future Has In Store

 Author's Note:  Hello again, for my creative writing group we were writing about the future. Like everyone else in the world, I'm not sure what the future has in store for me. I wrote this to tell you that your choices today are the choices you have to live with tomorrow. So why not make them good choices? 

People are all different. All people, have different futures in store for them. Most people wonder about the future. They wonder if they will succeed or fail in life. It all depends on the choices they make in their lives. If you make the right choices, your future could almost guaranteed to be happy. But, even happiness cannot cover up the bad choices you made in the past. Your life depends on who you are today, so why not be the best you can be today? Life can be tricky, life can be hard, but if you make the best of it today, your future will be your reward.

Let The Games Begin.

 Author's Note:  In gym class we recently played the Hunger Games in the woods out side of our school it was a lot of fun but it had me thinking, what if I were in the Hunger Games? The Hunger Games is merely a fantastic piece of literature and symbolism that was very well pronounced in 3 novels. I do like the story a lot but, nothing can cover up One Direction. This is just another story that is fun to write and rewrite about.

“Kaylie mail for you!”, my mom says up the stairs. “Be right there!”, I say as I place the Hunger Games book down on my desk. “Who’s it from?”, I say as I take the letter. “The United States Government, did you do anything wrong?”, my mom says as she watches me open the letter. “No, I never did.” I say as I start to read the letter. “Dear Kaylie Easterdeen,  We are pleased to inform you that you have been selected to participate in the 74th annual Summer Program. Your abilities have proved yourself worthy of this honor. Thank you and we hope to see you this summer. And don’t speak of this to anyone except you and your family. Sincerely, President Sun.”, I read as I examine the letter. “This is a great opportunity! And look, it says you are going with....Peter Melik. He is that nice boy in your English class!”, my mom says as she looks over the letter. “Wait, if this is the 74th, then why hasn’t anyone ever heard of it.” I say as I think this could all be a joke. “It’s probably really secretive.”, my mom says. I say in reply, “That’s weird, in my book, Katniss just volunteered as tribute.”

My bags were packed and I grab my book of my desk, I’m at the part where Katniss and Peeta are on the train. I get in the huge car with black tinted windows.
When I get in there are men in black suits, sunglasses, and earpieces. They didn’t say a word. “Where are we going exactly...”I say since we have been driving for at least an hour. “It will be another 2 hours.” ,the man says in a deep dark voice. They have just been sitting there, staring, at nothing. I know it will be a while so I start to read. I pull out my book and the men start staring at me and mumbling. I just bury my face in my book until the car stops and I hear a boom.

The man opens my door and I step out and see a platform that can lower under ground. I’m told to step on it. When I do it lowers to the underground and I see a medicine bed and a bunch of stylists. They don’t say a word. All they do change my clothes and fix my hair into a braid. Wow, just like Katniss. “What is going on, why are you dressing me up like Katniss, WAIT. Am I in the Hunger Games?”, I say as the stylists finish and one of them places his finger over my mouth and places a mockingJay pin on my jacket. I am Katniss.

I place my book in my small bag and they take away my phone and everything else. In the book,  I am at the part where the tributes are on the podiums where the hunger games begins. Just like what’s gonna happen to me. I am told to stand on the podium as it rises and I see 23 other people in the same position, confused. I turn to my right and see Peter, him and Peeta are identical. I look around and see all of these teenagers that look exactly like the other tributes in the book. Did the government try to reenact the Hunger Games? I guess this has been going on for longer than the time the book came out. Why am I Katniss?

5...4...3...2...1. Everyone starts to run to the center where all of the weapons are. I start to sprint to the bow and arrow because it’s the only thing I know how to use. (since I took lessons as a kid.) I sprint into the woods but before I do, I see people slaughtering each other in the center or the Cornucopia. I guess this is real, this is the Hunger Games. I run as far as I can in the woods. I find a tree to climb and through my bag up on one of the branches. I climb up to the tree to the top. I look around but all that I can find is my book....WAIT! Thats it! My book! I can read that to see what happens next and what I should do. I don’t know if my character, Katniss, lives or dies, but I guess I’m going to find out.

I’m half way through the book and I have done everything that Katniss did. I’m at the part where the careers are looking for me in the woods. Just as I finish that chapter I hear, “Hey look, There she is! Common guys. Let’s get her.”, The big tall one says. That must be the Cato. I turn and run. As I sprint I figure I have to climb a tall tree to make sure they can’t catch me. I start to climb and Cato is right behind me. I get to a branch and pull out my bow and arrow and point it straight at him, I miss. “I’ve got you now!”,He grabs on to an unsteady branch and falls. “Lets wait here guys, she will come down sometime.”, Cato says to the other careers. They set up camp under my tree and I keep reading my book, it says that there is a tracker jacker hive nearby and Katniss gets stung by one. It says she has unimaginable illusions. Now, I don’t want that to happen to me. So I wake up early look around, find the nest, and grab one of my bow and arrows and start to cut the branch. It cuts and falls right on them and has the same effect like in the book. I couldn’t believe it worked! I really felt like Katniss right here well without the hallucinations.

I followed everything the book said and I’m still alive but, in the book, the people of the captial were watching your every move. Now, its just the people of the government. Now I’m at the part of the story where Katniss reunites with Peeta and defeats Cato. I found Peter while running from Fox face and we hid in the cave just like the book. Lucky for me, Peter wasn’t wounded. We had got to know each other well, he looked exactly like Peeta which was a bonus, but I had to focus on being Katniss and winning the games. Peter and I fought Cato and won. Peter grabbed me and said “Kaylie? Kaylie?” I woke up in the middle of English to Peter’s voice. “Kaylie? Wake up we are starting a new book and I grabbed you a copy” He hands it to me and smiles. It was the Hunger Games.

1D Day!

 Author's Note: In our writing circles, we had to create a holiday that needed to be made up. Of course I did a One Direction holiday! They are my favorite band and Zayn is really dreamy. I hope you enjoy this short paragraph.

If I could create a holiday, what would it be? One Direction Day of course. This would be a day where only the true directioners could get out of school or work and all go to celebrate One Direction and all of their beauty. One Direction music would be playing throughout every town and city in the world. All of the boys in the band would be in London, performing for their home country. (Well, except for Niall) And Skyler Bohn and I would always be invited to go from row because I made up this holiday. After the concert Skyler and I would spend the rest of the day with them in England. Everyone else in the world would just be listening to One Direction. It would be an amazing day that would land on July 23rd because this was the date that One Direction became a band on the X-Factor (or that is what I’ve been told.). This day would be amazing and filled with One Direction. I can’t dream of a better day.

Exictment That Turns To Tragedy

Author's Note:  Just another horror story in my creative writing circle. It has the same characters that the one I posted in October of 2011 had but in a different setting and story line. Just a little something I typed up for the catagory of horror. Please enjoy. 
“I can’t wait!”, Addie says as we get out of the car. “Yeah, tell me about it, that car ride was so long!”, Tyler says as she gets out of the drivers seat. “Haha, I know! But it will all be worth it!”, Adam says as she walks out of the passanger’s seat. “Wait, why are there no cars here?”, Addie says as she looks around the empty parking lot. “They said it would be open today on their website.” Tyler says as she checks her phone. “Well, maybe just no ones here yet, which means short lines!”, Addie says as she runs to the counter. “Tickets please.”, the elder man says at the counter with a creepy grin on his face. “I’ve got them.”, Adam says as she hands the tickets to the man. “Hey, why is there no one here yet, the park opened an hour ago?”, Tyler says to the man. “More fun for you...”, the man says as he points to the gate. “Sounds good with me!”, Addie says as she runs and Adam and Tyler follow. As they enter, the gate slams behind them and the lock was put on.

“Lets go on Superman! It has the biggest drop!”, Addie says. “Lets do that last, that’s always the best closer ride.”, Tyler says. “I vote batman!”, Adam says as she points towards that part of the park. “Wait, why are all of the coasters running...there is no-one here.” Tyler says as she looks around. “Well at least the workers are here.”, Addie says as she sees all of them staring at the girls. “This is kinda creeps guys.” Adam says. “Well we’re at the front of the line so lets go on.”

As the girls get in their seats, the roller-coaster worker says “Enjoy your ride....” she says as she starts to laugh as she presses the button. “Guys....I don’t like this....GET ME OFF!” Addie says as her panic attack starts. “This is super sketch guys.”, Adam says. “Guys.....hold on.” Tyler says as the first drop happens. Everything goes black as they go through a tunnel. Addie screams as hard as she can. “Addie hold on! It’s not that bad. Addie?” Adam says as she turns and Addie isn’t there. “TYLER! ADDIE’S GONE!”, Adam screams as she starts to shake. “ADDIE! Oh my god GET ME OFF THIS RIDE!”, Tyler screams as the last drop happens. The ride stops and Adam and Tyler push their way out of the harness and the roller-coaster conductor says “How was it.....She will not return. So don’t try to look.”The roller-coaster conductor says as she comes near Adam and Tyler. “Oh my god.” They yell as they start to run.

“We have to find her Adam!”, Tyler says as they start to run to the gate. “Wait...look! Addie is at the top of Superman!” Adam says as she tries to see what she is hanging on. “It’s definitely not a train car!” Adam says as they start to sprint to the roller coaster. They go through all of the lines and get to the train car. “You must ride to the top to save your friend who is hanging.” A whole line of creepy roller-coaster conductors say. Adam and Tyler strap in and keep a harness open for when they have to save Addie. They get to the top and Addie tries to climb into the car because it makes a sudden stop. “Addie hold on!”, Adam says as she tries to get Addie in the car. The car makes a sudden jerk and Addie slips and starts to fall. “ADDIE!” Tyler and Adam scream as they see their best friend fall to her death.

“Ohh my god Tyler!”, Adam says as her tears are clouding her vision. They both look towards the rest of the coaster and see that all of the pieces are breaking until the whole rest of the roller-coaster is broken pieces on the ground. “ADAM!” Tyler screams as the roller-coaster plummets faster than ever straight into the air after they came from the drop. They scream as the coaster plunges to the ground not on any track.

One Direction

Author Note: This is just like a fan-fiction. It is suppose to be a love story and I guess it kind of is, but it is between Skyler and Harry. This is a Creative- Writing-Piece that was in a group with. Enjoy!
“That concert so amazing.” Skyler said, still shocked from seeing Harry in person from the front row. “Oh I know, I can’t believe it!, Zayn looked at me and stared!”, Mada said still shaking after Zayn looked at her. “Yeah right! There were so many girls there. It could have been anyone.” Skyler says in disbelief. “Oh don’t lie, you think that Harry’s wink was straight to you!”, Mada comments. “Well, he did!” Skyler says lightly defending her case. We were in Chicago, shopping after the One Direction concert that was at the arena only 20 minutes away. We walked right into Ralph Lauren on Michigan Ave. Mada still had her Zayn Malik jacket on, (which was custom made because Zayn’s trademark is a leather varsity jacket) and Skyler still wore her loose curls with a British flag shirt. Our makeup was flawless and our hair fell just perfectly. “Sky, I’m going to go look at the button up shirts.”, Mada says. “Okay, I’ll meet you at the register.”, Sky says with her eye on a cute summer time dress. Mada has so many shirts in her hand because she can never make up her mind. She quickly turns around and bumps right into someone with a lot of polo sweaters in their hands. They both fell while laughing. “Here let me help you with that.”, the boy says. Mada looks up and see’s his deep brown eyes staring right at her, his smile was captivating as a fireworks show and his hair was unbelievable. “Oh my god.”, Mada thinks as she takes his hand. “It’s Zayn Malik”.

“You should buy that you know”, someone says right in Skyler’s ear. “You would look perfect in it.” Sky makes a subtle turn and her eyes are fixed on his smile. “Oh....thanks.”, She says as he literally takes her breath away. “Hey, don’t I know you from somewhere?”, Harry says willingly. “Oh, me and my friend Mada sat front row at your a few hours ago.”, Skyler says as she is recapping what just happened.”That’s it;) , wow you’re a pretty dedicated fan.”, Harry says while thinking then that he knew he had to find her. “I guess so;)”, Skyler says with a flirty smile. “Hey, was your friend the brunette? Zayn wouldn’t shut-up about how he had to meet her.”, Harry says. “Oh yeah, she was wearing the Z varsity jacket.” Skyler says trying to hide her nervousness. Then they both turn around and see Zayn and Mada hand in hand with huge smiles. “Wanna all go out to dinner?”, Zayn says as he looks at Harry and Skyler. “Sure, but let me buy her this dress first....what is your name love?”, Harry says as he turns to Skyler. “Skyler;)” Skyler says as she grabs his hand. Harry looks at her and smiles, “Skyler Styles, what a beautiful name.”
